The Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together and increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, stroke and cardiovascular diseases. Western lifestyles with diets rich in fats and sugars promote its development. Its complexity makes it difficult to study, but actually, its worldwide prevalence can be estimated to be about 25% of the world population.
